Dear Fellow Home Inspector,

You've spent the time, effort and money to learn basic business skills. Now it is time to harness the million dollar marketing and implementation secrets that I have up to this point only shared with a few close friends. I can help you grow your business and prosper like you never thought possible!

Let me introduce myself — I am Mike Crow. I am known as one of the most successful inspectors in the nation. I grew a mom and pop (and son) company to a level that we were growing at 40% a month for the last six months and we were headed toward the 2 million dollar per year gross revenue. That's right — $2,000,000.00 per year. In part I have done this by taking ideas and strategies from one industry and superimposing them on another. I would like to show you how I can do this for you.

All that I need from you is your willingness to put aside three days. The truth of the matter is that today, more than ever, marketing is the engine that drives every business. Marketing makes you money, gives you superiority, and differentiates you from your competitors.

Quite simply, marketing is what happens when you are good to your customers. It's the process that allows you to identify potential customers, differentiate yourself from your competitors, explain how you can help them achieve their goals, and keep them coming back again and again.

Unfortunately, if you're like 99% of all growing businesses, you probably allocate too few resources to marketing, overlook many low-risk or no-risk marketing opportunities, and don't maximize your marketing efforts.

Allow me to introduce you to the marketing program that will change your business forever.

Announcing "Mike Crow's Business Building and Marketing Power Tools" a program that will help you build your business with unparalleled marketing into a comprehensive, results-orientated system you can apply to your business right now!

It's an extraordinary adventure in business-building that introduces you to some of the most successful, most innovative, and most profitable marketing and selling ideas.

Mike Crow's business building and marketing power tools can help you breathe new life into your business in so many different ways. You learn how to ...

Grow your business and differentiate it from your competitors.
Multiply your sales and dramatically improve the effectiveness of your advertising.
Create highly leveraged strategic alliances and joint ventures that literally bring business to your door.
Maximize every asset, contact, opportunity, relationship, distribution channel, employee, financial and human capital you have available.
Take control of your business as you isolate quantity and evaluate every aspect of your business.
Identify new ways to sell more things to more people, more frequently.
Remove chaos by creating clear, easy to follow priorities that empower your employees and reassure your customers.

You'll be amazed how easily you can adapt these ideas into your business... how suddenly you'll see significantly better results from the same time, manpower and capital ... and how many overlooked, untapped, and under-utilized cash cows you'll discover right under your nose.

Why insure with InspectorPro? Because we give our insureds with more than other providers. Here are our top five benefits: 

1. First-Rate Risk Management


Stop worrying about how you might get a claim and start doing things to prevent them. Our risk management team publishes new material twice a month so that you stay informed about your industry and get impactful insights into your insurance policy. We interview professional claims handlers, Ivy League professors, inspection school owners, and fellow home inspectors to give you exclusive information. Subscribe to our newsletter below to send cutting-edge content straight to your inbox.

SUBSCRIBE TO NEWSLETTER

2. Premier Pre-Claims Assistance



Potential claims keeping you awake at night? Why worry when your policy comes with pre-claims assistance? With pre-claims assistance, you get free help responding to unhappy clients so they’re less likely to make a claim against your business. Our risk management team prevents 85% of complaints from turning into claims. And even if you’re in that 15% that has a claim after all, you benefit from immediate defense

council that increases the likelihood of a quicker and cheaper resolution. Plus, we’ll give you 50% off your deductible for using our pre-claims service first. That’s what we call a win-win.

READ MORE ABOUT PRE-CLAIMS

3. Diminishing Simple Deductible



Don’t get tricked into paying more for claims when you don’t have to. With InspectorPro’s simple deductible, you don’t pay until your claim closes. That means you get all the defense before you pay out. And if closing the claim costs less than your simple deductible, you pay that lesser amount. As if not having claims isn’t enough, we reward our insureds for each consecutive year of no claims with us by “diminishing” or decreasing their deductible up to 50%.

4. Quality Customer Service


Just because you’re a niche industry doesn’t mean you have to rely on a one-man show. We’re a team of 15 licensed insurance brokers—five times the staff size of competing brokerages—and we work exclusively with home inspectors so we can give you the time and specialization you deserve. We work with multiple carriers so that we can match your business with the right coverage. And we perform the majority of our underwriting in-house, which allows us to send quotes, adjust coverage, and create certificates in 24 business hours or less. Best of all, our staffing size makes it possible for someone to be there to answer your calls and emails quickly and efficiently.

5. Separate E&O and GL Limits



We know that the main reason you’re buying home inspection insurance is to protect your business and your clients, so we don’t cut corners. Rather than giving you just one dollar amount for claims coverage each year, we give you two: one for E&O and one for GL claims, because we know you need both. That gives you more protection for your worst-case scenarios and more autonomy in case you’re more concerned about one type of coverage than the other. 

READ MORE ABOUT E&O vs GL

 Don’t settle for insurance coverage that doesn’t meet your needs. Your business deserves the same safeguard you give your clients. Let us protect while you inspect.

BuildFax collects and organizes construction records on millions of properties from cities and counties across the United States. This is data on new construction, repairs, additions, renovations, system specific work (roof, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, pool), demolitions, inspections, contractors and more.

BuildFax brings all of this data into a centralized location and serves it to users in one easy-to-read, standardized report. With a BuildFax Report, inspectors can run a Property "Background Check" before heading out to their next job.

Whatever your relationship is with property, know that BuildFax is behind you every step of the way. Arm yourself with the construction history of the property so that you know more about the property going in, especially by using BuildFax's 19-point risk factor summary.

Keep up with the competition and get referral business by including (or even re-selling) a BuildFax report with your inspections.

My name is Dee Goldstein and I have been involved with the Home Inspection profession for over 30 years during which time I have had the privilege of watching this profession evolve. Throughout my career I have created the marketing to turn a small multi-inspector company into a 12 inspector, million dollar company, start a home inspection business with my husband, and ultimately create the marketing system for a Home Inspection Franchisee System with over 30 offices in the United States and Canada. In 1997, my husband and I started a home inspection school in New Jersey and have trained over 1000 students. At the same time, I started GEM Marketing which specializes in assisting home inspection companies and not for profits with developing systems to market their business that they will use. My goals is to help you get comfortable with your marketing and create a professional image that you will be proud to use to promote your company.

Please drop me an email or call me so discuss any idea you may have. I enjoy crazy ideas. Chances are I probably already have a quality supplier for it. If not I will do my best to find one. Thanks for your time and I look forward to help you develop your system. Visit the ASHI Store at: http://www.ashistore.com/



Inspection Contracts

800-882-6242
david@inspectoreducation.com
www.inspectioncontracts.com

InspectionContracts.com started with a simple goal: assist property inspectors by providing an effective means of communicating the scope of their services to their clients. After working together for several years defending inspectors in litigated matters we found that many times ambiguity and confusion about the inspection entails, and more importantly, what it does not, contributed to cause customer complaints and, sometimes, insurance claims and litigation. Traveling around the country teaching risk management techniques to inspectors alerted us to the need for affordable, specific contracts for home inspection and other services related to the home inspection industry. We believe our contracts satisfy that need, and we hope you will too.

InspectionContracts.com was created by Joseph W. Denneler, Esquire of Salmon, Ricchezza, Singer & Turchi, LLP and David Goldstein, ACI, CRI of Inspector Education Institute. Joe has over 15 years experience litigating inspection claims for major insurance companies. David has 40 years of experience as a home inspector and over 25 years experience as an expert witness/consultant regarding home inspector related issues.
